What a wonderfully beautiful version of Peggy-O :) For some reason I feel so much more emotion from this song than I've heard it before. So warm!

Listening at work while cranking out some Java code. Start of Franklin's just gave me chills. I grew up in Buffalo but alas was clueless to the Dead at this time. My first concert would be Aerosmith in 1980...and first Dead show would not be until 1993 at Rich Stadium.
What a great recording of a stellar show, and I agree with the sentiment re: the night before.
Five stars all around for this one, can't believe this great music was going on just a few miles from my home while the 12 year old me was doing who knows what.

highlights are of course the franklin's suite, peggy-o and sunrise is a cool twist to throw in but this has to be one of the best Music never stops Ive ever heard. After set break they come back with an awesome estimated and a most memorable comes a time, donna and jerrys vocals compliment each other so much and jerrys guitar crys out it gives me chills.Jerry's crackling with eneregy, Bobbys right behind him, Phil is just on point. They are just rocking the house up there in buffalo. These are the shows from the magical years of 77'

Sitting here in my office grading students essays and listening to this show which is just gorgeous. I read the below review and I have to say, I didn't notice any cut in The Music Never Stopped. I scrolled back a bit and I couldn't find a clear cut. They might have done it too seamlessly for me to notice. Not that the reviewer is wrong, but I just wanted to add that I didn't notice the cut. A five star show for me.

One of my favorite shows, and the all time best TMNS, but beware:
There's a reel change in the soundboard master at the height of Jerry's epic TMNS jam. Most other versions of the show on here patch the missing section from a listenable AUD recording. This one is not patched; it simply skips that part of the jam. I'm taking away 1 star for that. Otherwise, a really nice recording of a 5+ star show.

I've always listened to the other recordings of this show but never this one. A mistake, I must say. It's fabulous and completely overlooked. You need to sit down, put your headphones on, and give it a listen. The fact is the more I listen to this soundboard the more I realize just how good the band was in Buffalo that night.

Too young to catch this show...
even though I lived in Rochester at the time. I was only 13 and would not discover the power and importance of the Dead's music for a few more years. i think a strong argument can be made that this show surpasses (all right I'll say it--Is better than) the night before at Cornell. This show was just not circulated to the same extent as Cornell and in my opinion never got the credit it deserves. The fact that this is the first review is testament to this fact. Nice to hear a soundboard of this show. My audience tape always seemed lacking when compared to the Cornell soundboard. Rare example of the Dead kicking ass at back to back shows.
